Chandler: It pays to serve and follow Jesus

Hello everyone! God is good, Jesus is Lord and Savior and the Holy Spirit is our Comforter. Every day is a good day because God has been so good to us and this is the day the Lord has made! I will rejoice and be glad in it! I can’t help but to say “thank You, God for another day.”

 

Our day may not be going the way we expect it to go but God is still good. I may not live in a big house or I may not have money in my pocket but God is still good. My health may not be as good as it use to be but God is a healer and He is still good! In everything, give thanks to God.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 reads: “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” You must understand, if you are serving God the devil is going to attack you in every area of your life. But don’t give in or give up because in the end, WE WIN!

Brothers and sisters, it pays to serve Jesus. I remember when I used to serve the devil, day and night, night and day. I thought I had it going on. I know for a fact I wasn’t serving God. So when you don’t serve God you are serving the devil! It’s either one or the other. Later on in life I found out the Bible says you can only serve one master, Jesus or the devil. Matthew 6:24 reads: “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”

Now who are you serving, Jesus or the devil? The devil has a way of making you think that serving and following him is the way to go but that is a lie straight from the pits of hell! Like I said, serving and following Jesus will pay off one day. I’m not judging or telling you what to do because you have to make up your own mind who you want to serve. But for me and my household, we are going to serve and follow Jesus.

I’m going to serve the One who died for me and His name is JESUS! I’m going to serve the One who woke me up this morning. You know Him because He woke you up too! And His name is JESUS, our God, Lord and Savior! I love to call His name, when I call His name something happens. Things that are out of place in my life begin to fall in place the way it should be. When I call His name, demons tremble.

At the name of Jesus every knee will bow and every tongue will confess to the glory of God that Jesus is Lord. When God says everyone will bow, that means the ones in Heaven, on earth, and under the earth. That’s right, the devil and his demons will bow to Jesus! That’s why I say that serving and following Jesus will pay off one day. Brothers and sisters, check yourself before you wreck yourself and make sure you are following Jesus and NOT the devil. Stop listening to the devil and don’t let him tell you it’s ok to serve and follow him.

You know, the devil doesn’t care anything about you. He is trying to get you to follow him straight to hell, a place where there is no way out and a place of burning fire, forever and ever. Once you are there, you are there! I beg you to serve and follow Jesus because one day you will see that it’s going to pay off for those who serve and follow Him. In closing, from me to you, don’t you know God love you? He wants you in Heaven with Him.

He sent us a ticket to Heaven and that ticket is through His Son, Jesus. You must believe He is the Son of the Living God. You must believe He died on a Roman cross for your sins. You must believe He got up out of the grave in three days. Now just ask Him to forgive you of your sins. Ask Him to come into your heart and let Him know that you made Him your Lord and Savior. Now tell Him, thank you and that you love Him. Amen…
